"We are running the Busch car at Charlotte and Dover. Anything beyond that, we are not sure of. Those two races are plenty for now, there is a lot on our plate. Everyone needs to get things settled in, especially on the Braun side. They have had a lot of changes as of recently. We are going to run those two races then everyone is going to buckle down and get some sponsorship for the remainder of the year. I am really excited about it. Running more Busch races is something I am really looking forward to. It's a great way for me to get more experience, should be a lot of fun, but it is going to be very busy."
